The contest was a particularly diffi- cult one in which a four-wheel hay rake was pulled out of its "stall," and pulled thru a wind- ing pathway of stakes without knocking them over, then back- Ing the implemerit back into its original setting. The second haz- ard was pulling a four-wheel ailer out of a "shed" and then backing it in with a tractor. This proved to be the toughest assign- ment and the few inches allow- ed was too.tough for some driv- ers. It's no wonder farmers leave their machinery in the fields if it is that difficult to back into a shed. , Three trophies were presented the first three place winners, by the implement dealers of Mount Pulaski, Other entries in the con- Stopher and Jim Cowan.
